like the debate. bill clinton told me that the debates are going to be crucial for romney. the first debate if he can turn around the 47% fiasco. it could be a disaster. the impression he gave that comes with being a wealthy detached guy not caring about people who need help. what would you recommend he do? >> i think the 47% comment revealed, he wasn't doing what you should do play to the center. he has written off peak who have the median income and below. the text book strategy is can you find a way. he is not taughting out ideology saying i can be a reasonable manager. that was his message at first sand he is trying to find different approaches which is what you do when you are losing and he should have stuck to the message he had all along instead of trying to pick paul ryan and we are going to have a discussion about the issues. >> marco rubio, you get a sense with paul ryan, that is not giving him a new air of voters coming in. they had barack obama. >> the book is fascinating. there are two categories. when weather forecasters and gamblers. they aren't giving you an exact ans
when bill clinton was running for president before and it didn't happen. our tax rates were higher and the world did not implode. >> bill clinton cut spending. >> bill clinton did cut spending. >> that's correct. >> bill clinton was worried about deficits. be obama is increasing spending. he wants tax credits and spending subsidies. >> this is not what with tax cuts to higher people -- >> i will ask you about when he talks about energy he is not talking about fraking or shale. he is talking about more green energy spending. that's the difference between him and clinton. >> appreciate that. what i'm saying is if you don't like the same as it ever was, let's have a conversation about the bush years if we are going to talk about what worked and didn't work, bush's policies did not work. if you don't believe me, look at the 4.5 million jobs. >> what do you mean? >> 2008 until january 2009, we lost 4.5 million jobs. >> do you know over the same time span that bush created more jobs. the bush recovery created more jobs than the obama -- >> what was -- >> even though the recession was muc
, players and former president bill clinton and of course gary radnich. they all sound off next. [ laughter ] [ girl ] wow. you guys have it easy. i wish i had u-verse when i was your age. in my day, we didn't have these fancy wireless receivers. blah, blah, blah. if i had a sleepover, i couldn't just move the tv into the playroom. no, we had to watch movies in the den because that's where the tv outlet was. and if dad was snoring on the couch, we muscled through it. is she for real? your generation has it made. [ male announcer ] the wireless receiver. only from at&t u-verse. get a free wireless receiver with a qualifying u-verse plan. rethink possible. >>gary: if you do not want to say was the most embarrassing night in recent nfl history, how about the most talked-about in seattle, the final play of the game. we will spare you the details, just take a look.green bay appe interception, it would've won the game, but it was ruled a touchdown for the seattle seahawks. more than 70,000 calls flooded nfl offices since the salon called by replacement officials a reported $200 million in gambli
romney appeared with former president bill clinton at the initiative and accused mr. obama sitting on the sidelines while the mideast unravels. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood ambassador in libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we saw a field at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> reporter: the president did not call it a terrorist attack. an assault not just on america but the values of the un and declared he understands why and anti muslim video in planned some. >> we are home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion but have laws that protect individuals from being harmed. >> reporter: advancing the nuclear program and test firing four missiles designed to hit warships the president insisted his policy is not containment. >> make no mistake, not a challenge that can be contained. it would threaten the elimination of israel which is why a coalition of countries is holding the iran
sounded like he was tired, and then of course, that debate with bill clinton and george herbert walker bush where he showed, he looked at his watch. so these are moments when people are really assessing your temperament, your body language, your demeanor. so it's a big night for both president obama as well as governor romney. >> did you hear him sigh? were you backstage like stop sighing? >> i heard it the first time. by the third time i pretended not to listen. but more importantly, once they put up that split screen, then you looked at he was rolling his eyes and of course, it was not a pretty moment. but we came back in the second debate. >> that's when the democrats started sighing, too, right after al gore. mitt romney has to demonstrate he's changed. there are a lot of voters in this country who are unsatisfied with barack obama. they think we could do better. they don't know that mitt romney is that change. neither of these guys has told us what the next four years could be like because of the changes they would bring. >> and that's i think another challenge that mitt romney ha
and bill clinton i am protested because of lies and coverups, where is the accountability in this administration, own up to the fact that we are at war with an evil force never be molified or satisfied until we're all dead. this is not about political offices or expanded geopolitical orders, this is about the survival of our civilization, if this administration can't or won't lead in the battle then step aside and let someone do it who won't lie to us and endanger our children. [applause] well, on friday, the office of the director of national intelligence issued a statement, attempting to put the matter to rest, going to washington is the chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. why this document dump on a friday afternoon? >> well, you know, governor, as well as everyone else when you've got bad news, the place you put it is late on friday, what we had with the statement from director of national intelligence, a person who is a top intelligence officer in the united states government and i have the statement right here. and what i believe it does, seems to gi
win and i would think that there was this notion that bill clinton was inherently illegitimate and nothing too extreme to dislodge him from the white house because he was de-facto illegitimate. and i think with barack obama, this notion that this could not have happened. this was a nightmare inflicted on us by a.c.o.r.n. >> you are so funny. you have the cartoon sense, the way they look at this. the idea that somehow it doesn't belong to the democrats and bill clinton went to russia when he was a kid, he's some sort of mole, some sort of martahari. and even kennedy -- why do they think illegitimately, why does the white house belong in the hands of the toris, if you will, the conservatives? >> because i think it's symbolic. they feel the symbol of the country has got to represent the symbol of the values, pushing what they see is the american value system, which is capitalism unrestrained, this idea of freedom that they have actually glommed on to things, corporations. they believe that the president is the salesman to the world of what they see as the american story, which is
but had one of his best surrogates former president bill clinton aides say will be the primary case tonight which this was an economic crisis he inherited and tough to turn around in one term. take a listen to bill clinton. >> the economy is not fixed. i'm telling you nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run and a vision of we're all in this together is a heck of a lot better than you're on your own. there is no you're on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good we're all in this together strategy. [cheers and applause] none, not one. the challenge for the president tonight though is back in early 2009 he said if he didn't turn around the economy for n. three years it would be a one-term proposition. that's the problem when you are incouple again you have got a record that's going to it be under microscope not just from the moderator but mitt romney as well, shep. >> shepard: it seems he has a strategy of his own for going after mitt romney. >> when you talk
with the mr. obama's capabilities, he is no bill clinton in that regard. hollywood will be prompter-free. >> we've seen obama say there are 57 states in the union, then he goes, some kind of -- takes over his face, and it looks like he is caught in the lights like a deer. when he does not hit the ball in the sweet spot, he starts to crumble a little bit. because, the facade is so important to him. lou: you think that -- who is more gaffe prone? who has do you think the greater likelihood of committing, well significant mistake. >> i am sure romney does not offer $10,000 bet. lou: i remember governor perry's face. >> obama will have to think how many books do i have to sell to make $10,000. lou: did you see the pictures, sitting with a big wad of cash in his hand, president is well-heeled. >> you think that mitt romney is a businessman, not a politician, really, at heart. lou: for crying out loud, you can tell me a lot of things but you cannot sell me, that this man mas been running for president now for years, and years, he is a former governor, he spent the last part of his life sp
, and you point to former president bill clinton as master of warmth. i want to show a video of him during a town hall with ross per roet and then president bush back in 2002. >> you know people who lost their homes and lost their homes? >> uh-huh. >> he's walking toward this woman, toward this voter, away from the people on stage. so he's focused on the voter, not on the other candidates. he's gentle, his body language is gentle. he's leaning toward her, he's even softened his voice. he's nodding, makes incredible eye contact. he signals to people when he is talking to them, you are the only person in the room. you are the only person. the clinton tractor beam that really melted people. >> i feel your pain without even saying it. >> that's exactly right. >> there's a classic moment between al gore and george bush back from 2008, i want to show that and see what al gore does and how george bush reacts? >> not only what your philosophy and position on issues, but can you get things done? and i believe i can. >> explain that? >> this looked very overscripted and rehearsed. he's decided to sh
to be reelected. do you think, steve, people believe the bill clinton argument that nobody, no president, could have actually solved this in four years? >> yeah, i do think that had some effect. there is no question that president obama came out of the conventions with a little bit of momentum. you talk, it is not only showing up in the public polling that we're talking about here today but talk to republican pollsters polling on senate and house races and they will talk about what they call the clinton bump. they have seen it across polling in various parts of the country that voters who are asked a question is the country on the right track, is the country on the wrong track, which most pollsters believe the single best determiner ho will win in november, there was a jump in the right track number, even if they don't specifically agree with how the president is handling the economy, on the general question whether we're on the right track, they think we are, because you think in part democrats successfully pressed this message that nobody could have done better than president obama's done. gr
. president obama had two appointees. george w. bush had two appointees. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilit probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often areurprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as re there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surpred by roberts' vote in the affordable care act case. hatlarge presidents w you e is what you get. iden yo
of self- reliance. here is bill clinton at the democratic convention. it was either arithmetic or facts. i was not sure what to put. it is kind of pathetic. the democrats were all waiting for somebody to come up and spell out these things clearly. it took bill clinton to come out and say something that democrats felt excited and rally about. there might be a communication problem in the white house. here is crisscrossed the speaking at the rnc. -- chris christie speaking at the rnc. mitt romney is another saying "do not forget to mention my name." here is a guy at the convention. i think the ladies know what i am talking about here. paul ryan appears -- appeals to seniors. a scary eddie munster guy. here is mitt romney's money. chilling i know a guy that does a fake twiter account called "mexican mitt romney." he is a big smash on the twitter. politico named it one of the top-10 funniest fake twitter accounts. it plays off on the fact that mitt romney's dad was born in mexico in a mormon colony and was actually -- mitt romney might be the first chicano president. mexican mitt romney seems
politician. you point to former president bill clinton as the master of warmth. i want to show a video of him during town hall with ross perot and then president bush back in 1992. kind of walk us through what we're seeing. >> okay. >> you know people who have lost their jobs and lost their homes. >> so he's walking toward this woman, toward this voter, away from the people onstage so he's focused on the voter, not on the other candidates. he's gentle. his body language is gentle. he's leaning toward her. he's even softened his voice. he's nodding. he makes incredible eye contact. he signals to people when he's talking to them you are the only person in the room. you're the most important person. it's that clinton tractor beam that really melted people. >> is that i feel your pain without actually saying it? >> that's exactly right. >> there's a classic moment between al gore and george w. bush from a debate in 2000. i want to show that, and i want to see what al gore does and how george bush reacts. >> it's not only your philosophy and what's your position on issues but can you get things do
talking the next day about bill clinton's incredible speech and instead i was talking to reporters about this fiasco and, frankly, it shouldn't have happened and shouldn've ppened the way it happened. the language that got added at the end of the day was inconsequential. jerusalem is the capital of israel. it is going to be the capital of iso the capital of a palestinian state. it said that it haso be negotiparties. we agree with that. all ofth embasment prov po that nobody needed .arrassment and wa wro was an >> dane, one other issue that took center stage todat the natns with abb the middle east pee ce. was >>r lack there of >>[[ or l. sten tomi'm re you're awaof but listen to theseomments that mitt romney made at fd-iser ck in may. list to this. >> i'm torn by two perspectives in this regard. pa interest whatsoever in establishing peace and that the pawa to peace is almost u.n. thinkable to accomplish. pathw to peace is almost unthinkablto accomplish i mean, what do you make of those remarks? do these hurt him? i mean,houn't he be more optimistic in running for president than he can
the tax rates in the united states, where they were during the bill clinton administration in '90s when the economy was doing just fine. what's wrong with that argument? >> nothing. but -- you need to do -- if you are going go down that path you have do that over time. can't do that cold turkey. i mean, that's just too much of a hit for our after-tax income. particularly in the context of what is still a very weak economy. if you want to go down that path, again, i don't think we need to, between don't need to see tax rates rise that much. if you want to go down that path, only way to make logical sense of that is phase that in over time so people can digest that and wouldn't push us back into a recession. i don't think we need go down that path. we need tax revenue, we need to see additional tax revenues generated. we don't need to see that much general rayed. that would be counter-produce. >> what if they let the taxes lapse for the wealthiest americans which is what president obama wanted those families making more than $250,000 a year, individuals making more than $200,000 a year, w
. they are not the gifted bill clinton kind. so what -- you tell me whether when we listen to these two guys wednesday night it will be how they convince us who has a better poll policy or it will be a moment like avoiding a tbaf, or like al gore seeing. >> we have a greater history of negative things happening in debates that change the trajectory of races. so don't screw up. that's rule number one. but rule number two, if you are mitt romney when you go into this debate you need to change the trajectory of this. you can't do it by being a human fact checker. but what you can do is remember you are talking to tens of millions of american voters that night and whatever the question is, whatever obama says, mitt romney has to make sure he puts a simple clear statement of his views and his beliefs about the future of the united states on the record. it's his chance to put it on the record so he can't screw around. >> i would recommend him not telling too many jokes. he needs to be very careful. >> this economy is no laughing matter. i think most people will be be watching this debate in the hope of who they c
who will be here wednesday, bill clinton, the former president stumping for barack obama. you ask what the polls look like. this is from american research group. you can see the president with a five point advantage within that survey psychology error. another poll had a slightly larger advantage for the president. it's competitive here in new hampshire. >> the debates are so critical. it's hard to say whether these debates are more important than other debates we've heard. what are the candidates doing and have to accomplish in terms of hitting home their major points? >> reporter: exactly. so much on the line wednesday night when president obama and mitt romney showed up for the first time since colorado. what are they doing today? mitt romney in massachusetts preparing and the president in washington. they are probably doing debates with their stand-ins. senator rob portman is doing the sta stand-in for mitt romney and done it in the past. and they go back to massachusetts. who better than a massachusetts politician to play mitt romney. that person is senator john kerry, the senior
a debate with then-candidate bill clinton. the gesture gave voters the impression that he was impatient and uninterested. during the 2000 presidential debates, al gore got up in governor george w. bush's grill. look. [laughter] just a classic moment where he was invading his personal space a little, and, boy, did he take some flak. mr. bush gave him a nod and kept talking. in one of the more unusual moments during the vice presidential debates in '92 between republican dan quayle, democrat al gore and the third party running mate of ross perot who was admiral james stockdale, there was this moment. >> admiral stockdale, your opening statement, please, sir. >> who am i? [laughter] why am i here? [laughter] [applause] megyn: he was totally charming and likable but also got a lot of criticism for his performance in that debate, and, you know, his family later came out and said they thought it was unfortunate because they thought it changed his legacy, and he was a very honorable man. in any event, we are all watching wednesday night. they say this is going to be the most important debate b
on the proceedings. we should have been talking the next day about bill clinton's incredible speech and instead i was talking to reporters about this fiasco and, frankly, it shouldn't have happened and shouldn't have happened the way it happened. the language that got added at the end of the day was inconsequential. jerusalem is the capital of israel. it is going to be the capital of israel and also the capital of a palestinian state. it said that it has to be negotiated betweenparties. we agree with that. all of that embarrassment to prove a point that nobody needed to have proved i think was an embarrassment and was wrong. >> danielle, one other issue that took center stage today at the united nations with abbas and netanyahu speaking today was the middle east peace process. >> or lack there of. >> or lack there of. listen to the comments and i'm sure you're aware of, but listen to these comments that mitt romney made at that fund-raiser back in may. listen to this. >> i'm torn by two perspectives in this regard. one is the one which i've had for some time, which is that the palestinians have n
in modern history, not john f. kennedy, not president bill clinton, president george bush not ronald reagan has prepared as much as he has so no question he will have a lead on how prepared he is. you would seeing that think president obama has never navigated a single successful debate. aren't they lowering the bar. you lower expectations so if anybody does pretty well, you win the game, you win the debate? >> the facts are the facts. what we remember from the republican nominating process, as much as i didn't want to watch them, i found myself watching them because i was amazed at the things going on. one after another, romney did seem to win and declared the winner by most of the pundits. in the end, it's about both of them going out there and doing the best they can. >> it's also how people perceive it as well. if you look at a cnn roc poll that talks about who's more likely to win the debates. obama, 59% believe he will win the debate, mitt romney, 34% believe. that has to be a concerning number, right, if the expectation is very high, if you don't meet or reach above that, you have a
to 1992. president george h.w. bush was already on the ropes against bill clinton over a sluggish economy. when casper weinberger was implicated in the iran-contra scandal shortly before election day. bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president, did not need. in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day, i a razor thing race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believe had helped president bush. more recently, the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's
